Spartacus star chosen to Die Hard

Jai Courtney has won the battle to star as Bruce Willis' son in Die Hard 5.

The star of TV series Spartacus: Blood And Sand beat Aussie hunk and Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth to the part of John McClane's offspring Jack in A Good Day To Die Hard

The film will apparently see action man John face "his greatest challenge ever" as he and his son stage a prison escape in Moscow.

The film's maker 20th Century Fox said: "McClane faces his greatest challenge ever, this time on an international stage, when his estranged son Jack is caught up in the daring prison escape of a rogue Russian leader, and father and son McClane must work together to keep each other alive and keep the world safe for democracy."

Directed by Max Payne's John Moore, filming on Die Hard 5 is due to begin in Russia in April, for a planned February 2013 release.
